She is going to find herself
when she is meant to find herself.
In the wrong or in the right place.
In this space or in the next.
Today or tomorrow.
Tomorrow is drowning drunk in love,
In the things she cannot understand.
But there will always be,
Something happening to her,
and something will always be changing her.
Something to bring her closer to herself.
She will continue, she will endure and grow.
And the way she will see the world
will be nothing more, but a reflection
And all at once the search will be beautiful.
The birth of a flower is one to remember, the moment we all pay attention to her bloom. - r.m drake
Woke up to my flatmate (shoutout to @concottonsocks ) and her boyfriend making me breakfast, now we are all going to sit around and chat and drink coffee like a big family. This is cute af. More of this please.
This is maybe my favourite thing about winter - it encourages spending time with good people and eating good food 👌
Going to go be productive now (hopefully)

It's Christmas jumper day 🎅⛄❄ and I've basically gone to work in my PJs. That's REAL freedom 😁
Hope everyone has a wonderful FriYAY 😘 remember to keep yourself safe over the weekend. In the middle of festive/frosty/feasting party season remember to... 1) DRINK WATER LIKE A THIRSTY HIPPO 💧
2) Wear a coat PLEASE ❄
3) PLEASE wear shoes with grip on them 😨
4) Try and sneak some green shit in between mince pies 🍏
5) Try and sneak some movement and daylight in between Netflix binges ☀
6) Try and love your family even though Christmas turns them into blood-sucking demons 👿
7) Only party with the friends who are willing to hold your hair when you throw up on a night out. Where's the prosecco at?! 😘
🦎 #hollowbackjueves 🐢
With one of my favorite Barcelona artists : @hazard0ne .
Another Thursday (jueves) that I didn't have time to get home to bring out my handmade @vayuyogawheel, so I decided to experiment with my all time favorite #hollowback shape with the new grip - hands together as opposed to flat on the mat.
I'm starting to feel a lot more comfortable in this grip and it definitely lets you go deep into opening those shoulders.
Also, I recently started playing around with another hollowback shape too, and I have a video from today but I'll have to wait till later tonight to post it.
Has been such a grey and dreary week here in Barna, but I'm not gonna lie - I like the darkness. 🦎👣🐢

👣 Hollowbackjueves 🎨
Esta semana con un muro de una de mis artistas preferidas de Barcelona : @hazard0ne.
Hoy voy justo de tiempo y no me daba para ir a casa a buscar una de mis @vayuyogawheel artesanas. Así que he optado por experimentar con mi forma preferida de hollowback con el nuevo agarre - manos juntas en vez de planas en la esterilla.
Empiezo a sentirme más cómoda con las manos así y la verdad que da mucho juego para profundizar en la apertura de hombros.
También he empezado a experimentar con otra nueva forma de hollowback y he grabado un vídeo esta tarde pero no puedo subirlo hasta que llegue a casa esta noche.
Y vaya semana más gris aquí en Barcelona, aunque tengo que admitir que me gusta la oscuridad. De vez en cuando apetece mucho pasar unos días así. 🖤

Friday morning flashback to #acroyoga with @acroyogaballerina. Ever since I flipped my grip in bow pose earlier this year I had a teeny secret dream to do it acro style. Little did I know the reason you see it so rarely is that it’s pretty intense for both the flyer and the base as the flyer as no hands to protect themselves in a fall, and the base has to balance a lot of seesawing while the flyer gets into it. But Pip is as solid as a rock, and once she persuaded me to calm down and ask for what I needed to feel secure (backwards/forwards etc) we had it nailed pretty quickly. Nothing like ticking things off the dream list right?!
